Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Go to a page, then click on a link. Try to get back to the first page by pressing AltGr-Left. Press the back button. Try to get to the next page by pressing AltGr-Right. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: Return to previous/next page. There is a possibility that this is to do with my keymap, although I have never modified it (because I don't know how). If anyone can suggest a tool for Linux to dump the keymap, I will be happy to attach said dump for examination.
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040811 Firefox/0.9.1+ 'xmodmap -pm' and 'xmodmap -pk' would probably be the most useful keymap output.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040922 Firefox/0.10 WFM in WinXP
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050404 Firefox/1.0+ AltGr and the left and right arrow keys WFM just fine. Reporter, is this still an issue (nightly build, clean profile)? FWIW, 'xmodmap -pm' outputs: mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_L (0x7d), Meta_L (0x9c) mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Super_L (0x7f), Hyper_L (0x80) mod5 Mode_switch (0x5d), ISO_Level3_Shift (0x7c) For me. Seems like the problem is on your end.
> Reporter, is this still an issue (nightly build, clean profile)? I am no longer in possession of the laptop that exhibited the issue, so I am unable to ascertain whether it was resolved. Since nobody else has reported the problem I am led to believe that it was something to do with that machine in question. Resolve as INVALID?
WORKSFORME is good, thanks for the update.

I am now using Firefox 1.0.4 on a PC running Windows 98, and the same behavior is being exhibited.

Earle - your reported Firefox version(s) are too old a build to analyze bugs against now. The problem you are reporting may well have been fixed already. Do I understand that with "same behavior" (comment 8) you imply the bug is still present? Could you please download a recent version or nightly build from <http://www.mozilla.org/releases/nightly.html>, and then let us know if you still see this problem? Many thanks, Cigno PS: Are there possibly other conflicting programmes which you installed on both your old laptop and the "new" PC?

Nope.
Referring to http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/keyboard AltGr is not supposed to offer this function: On Win/Linux only Alt+LEFT and BACKSPACE should produce this behaviour. If someone has a different reference or knows of some standard that Alt and AltGr should have the same behaviout under certain circumstances, please comment. Otherwise, this bug should actually be INVALID or a request for ENHANCEMENT if deemed suitable. Since the reporter generalized from Linux to Windows --> OS to ALL.
OS: Windows 98 → All
(In reply to comment #11) > AltGr is not supposed to offer this function Thank you. You're the first person who has managed to explain this behavior. > Otherwise, this bug should actually be INVALID or a request for ENHANCEMENT if > deemed suitable. Changing to ENHANCEMENT.
Severity: minor → enhancement
Summary: AltGr + arrow for history navigation doesn't work → AltGr + arrow should work for history navigation
'Someone from upstairs', please comment on this possible enhancement!
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Sorry for confirming, should have done better search: Dupe (part of) bug 55759 which for most of it focuses on the AltGr issue. It has however been inactive since 2001/02 despite being open. Maybe this dupe and a few more votes will change that. It certainly is in desperate need of a concise rewrite. Maybe a new summarising bug should be opened as suggested in bug 55759 comment 30. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 55759 ***
